          Sorry, but in Spain its regulated with basic regulations while a solution is found at the state level, as in the rest of the world. And the main cities already have it regulated. Drinking beer and doing what you want is typical of foreigners.

    Nope, just heard that e-scooters and -boards will stay illegal in the Netherlands. They don’t replace the car, what would be a positive thing. They replace walking and cycling.
